Hi Guys
I'm disappointed about my performance on practice test, especially
on CR. My scores is 560--verbal 31 math 42; furthermore, my CR accuracy rate is only 27%(3/11). It is extremely horrible.
Overall, I think this practice test is more easy than that of CD-ROM. Thus, I think you do not waste your time to take it if you have willing to so, because this practice test isn't rather quality and can not identify your ability to tackle GMAT test, at least I think so.
All right, why I can't do well on CR questions even though I have been doen plentiful exercise and worked on my stuff(kaplan and PR), this practice makes me confusing.
Hope you could give me some comment about CR.
Thank

Have you tried the game Stolyar and I Played about guessing assumptions and the CR section that I actually wrote for this website?

Hi BB
No, I have not saw your article or the other on this site.
Very thank your response.
In fact, I think the key factor that I can't do well on the CR of practice test
is limited time pressure; on the other hand,my accuracy rate is approxmiately 65%~70% when I do CR on general exercise without limited time.
Besides time factor, the solving strategy could need revise. In fact, I had studying stuff(Kaplan and PR) when I tried to tackle CR questions. Yet, I always have different logic and thought with the so-called "strategy" from those books. Maybe, I can try to work your approach or other's.
Above, the situation I encounter now is urgently solved.

Hi Chihao,

I had the same experience while practicing with out time limits. However once I started to impose upon myself time limits, I started to realize that small mistakes started to creep in.

I think it is always advisable to practice with time limits.

I have a story about practicing wihtout time limits.

One time I took an online test from PR online tester during my lunch break at work and I decided if I cut some corners I coudl probably fit in the whole section or maybe even two if I spread it aroudn the whole day so much about productivity.

Anyway, I set it to be without a time limit, but I sort of timed myself. It was a completely different story - I did very well, only two or so mistakes in the whole test and I finished early - all only because I was not paniking about time.l
